Continuing on from my previous Blog on debunking Myths about Microdermabrasion ....
Myth: It’s enough to undergo microdermabrasion, no extra effort is needed.
Once you’ve undergone a microdermabrasion treatment you don’t have to do anything but relax. Not quite. You need to protect your skin.
Microdermabrasion is designed to help other skin care products work effectively as they penetrate the deeper layers of your skin.
One thing that you need to take note of after your session is to regularly apply a high sunscreen. After your microdermabrasion treatment, your new skin is more vulnerable to sun damage that’s why it needs a daily sun protection. Don’t swim in chlorinated pools for a few days or use sun beds.
It can also be used along with other treatments such as chemical peels and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) therapy.
Myth: Microdermabrasion is only good for fair-skinned people.
Some people have come to believe that you cannot book a microdermabrasion if you have fair skin. This is simply untrue and you should not fall for this myth. Microdermabrasion is an effective skin treatment no matter the skin type of colour. If you’re unsure whether or not microdermabrasion is right for you, then you should talk to your dermatologist.
Microdermabrasion isn’t created just for one skin type or skin tone. It works well with every skin colour or skin type that has minor skin imperfections.
These imperfections could be the ones affected by sun damage and aging. It is therefore intended for the general improvement of the skin’s overall appearance, and texture.
However, people who have more serious skin problems should seek other treatment alternatives advised by a professional skin care specialist or a medical practitioner in a related field.
